My Weight Loss Story

Today's post is something different than what I usually do.  I would like to share something personal today with my readers.  Health and Fitness is something that everyone is very conscience of nowadays. We are now realizing the risks and problems that can arise from lack of healthy nutrition and exercise. Today I would like to share with you my weight loss story.

From a young age I was always  overweight. I was active and danced competitively for hours each week, but I still never witnessed any weight loss. My eating habits were terrible. I remember drinking a whole two litre of soda to myself and not regretting it. I had an overeating problem, if someone offered me something I would automatically eat it. Once I remember eating a foot long sub from Subway and 3 McDonald's pies for dessert. I also was starting to suffer from high blood pressure. I continued living like this until about my third year of university.

During my third year in January, I started going to the university gym with a friend. For me it was more of a social thing, I really didn't care about working out, nor did I really know how to work out. Then one day I decided I liked walking about the treadmill and listening to music and then lifting a few weights. I decided that I would go to the gym every morning. I started feeling better about myself and looking better.

A Zumba class was held at the university and I fell in love. After quitting dancing after high school, I was finally able to dance again. Now I was doing zumba and my morning workouts. My best friend and I decided we loved zumba so much we joined a local gym. There I kick started my weight loss journey in full gear. I was exercising 5 days at week either by my own personal work out or by attending a group exercise class.  In terms of eating, I stopped eating junk food and snacking. Pop was eradicated completely from my diet.

While I am still working on my journey, I am proud to stay I have dropped from a size 14 to a size 0. In terms of pounds I have lost approximately 45 pounds maybe a little more or less. This journey is something I will be forever proud about. I know I still have a way to go to get my body to look exactly how I want, but I am a lot closer to that goal now.
